Industry Technical Support Leadership Committee (ITSLC)
Chair: Babak Enayati
In 2016, IEEE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to address grid modernization challenges. The IEEE objective is to provide independent and unbiased viewpoints on important technical issues by leveraging IEEE membership, including Technical Committees and chapters. IEEE PES has formed the Industry Technical Support Leadership Committee (ITSLC) to facilitate global collaboration between the IEEE and governments, regulatory, and other industry organizations, such as the U.S. DOE, and to provide fast response as required by changes that our industry is experiencing. The ITSLC Force works closely with the IEEE Standards Association (SA), IEEE-USA, and other societies.
As part of the collaboration initiative, the U.S. DOE has asked IEEE to develop a whitepaper on the impact of IEEE 1547 standard on smart inverters and the applications in Power Systems. IEEE has formed a fast-track Working Group of industry experts to respond to this request in a timely fashion. This whitepaper is a revision of the whitepaper that was published in 2018 as a result of the work with a purpose not only to support the U.S. DOE initiatives in this important area, but also to provide important information and education to IEEE membership.
